Interesting fact Portugal has always lost to France, not sure about France and Italy. But Italy always been a strong team. Viva Italia!

C'moan le coqs sportif! So glad they beat Portugal, whose diving puts other teams in the shade. Even Figo, who I like was at it last night

Should be a good final.

Tres bien, team France!! Now we can expect a sizzling final to remember, I am already juiced up for it

My vote for the Golden Ball award goes to Fabio Cannavaro, he has been the staunch anchor for the iron defence of the Azzuri, even during their slow start he was one of the very few working at the full speed. He is an excellent leader as a captain, too.

The only problem with him is that he shaved off his flowing lock!!

I wouldn't be surprised if indeed he has been the model for them

I wouldn't mind seeing your Raul Gonzalez in similar role, either

My vote goes to Zinedine Zidane. Zizu came back from retirement and has done france proud.

Nice! Another reason to watch soccer I kinda want Italy to win but only because I am part Italian, other than that, it doesn't reall matter to me. I was surprised to see how Italy's team didn't have really any good looking guys, I always found Italian men attractive but I guess soccer isn't a interest for them

Football is an interest for every Italian male I've ever met I was sitting in a restaurant in Florence during either the last World Cup or the European cup.. We waited.... and waited.... and waited between courses. After being there for nearly 2 hours and only served the first course, I went looking for waiting staff... ALL of them were in the kitchen, watching the Azzuris.
